Les Minquiers RIB Voyage

Join us on this exploratory RIB voyage to one of wonders of the natural world, Les Minquiers (also known as ‘The Minkies’), is home to breath-taking scenery including its infamous reef at over 300 km2 (larger than most British cities), which boasts hundreds of granite fangs, wildlife, geology and archaeology- more spectacular than anywhere else in Europe. At high water (around 50 metres!) the stunning surroundings of the Island are submerged except the charming Maitresse, with stone cottages and no permanent inhabitants, Minquiers is the perfect getaway for peace and tranquillity. Book today for this scenic voyage of a lifetime!

IMPORTANT: Due to change in legislation, this trip will NOT put people ashore at the main island (Maitre Ile) and will only visit the sandbar. The new legislation protects the migratory birds and as such a large part of the island is not accessible.
